Dallas Mavericks vs Boston Celtics NBA Basketball Betting Tips 

Dallas will finish their 4 game Eastern Conference road trip in Boston with a loss to the Celtics.

The Mavs are playing their 4th game in 6 nights as they travel to Boston from their 136-125 win over the Raptors on Thursday. The first two games of the journey ended in losses to the Pacers and Cavs with the Cleveland game going right down to the wire. A Max Struss halfcourt shot won the game on the buzzer for the home team. The Mavs though are a much better team than both Indiana and Cleveland and should have put up better fights.

Boston have the highest current win streak heading into this matchup with 9 straight wins under their belt. They have also won 17 of their last 20 games and will come into this battle with 3 days rest in the bag. The Celtics disposed of their Eastern Conference competitors NY Knicks and Philly 76ers with ease in their past two match-ups with 14 and 18 point wins respectively.

Dallas had won 7 in a row prior to this road trip and since the trade deadline have been one of the more impressive teams. In this situation though the odds are stacked against them both physically and mentally.  Boston will cover and keep the Mavs under their team total of 113.5

  • Boston are 27-3 at home this season and Dallas are 16-12 on the road. 
  • The Celtics lead the league in 3pt Attempts & 3pt Makes
  • The Mavs allow their opponents to shoot 35.9 three pointers per game, 9th most in the NBA
  • Boston are 5th in scoring defence on the season

Dallas Mavericks Form

Luka is just a prodigy. The team came away with a win against the Raptors on his 25th birthday on Thursday as Doncic hit a triple-double for the 11th time this season. His stats in the game were 30/11/16, truly a master in his craft. 

The rest of the team though has some catching up to do if they want to climb out of the play-in race into a top 6 spot in the Western Conference. They currently sit one game behind the Suns in 5th and a half a game behind the Pelicans in 6th.

Dallas Mavericks Team News

Luka is listed as questionable with a Ankle and Nose injury but it didnt keep him from playing last game so i wouldn’t read much into it. 

No other major news.

Boston Celtics Form

Things just keep getting better for the Celtics who will seek their 10th win in a row against the Mavs. They have handed out losses to the Heat, Knicks, 76ers and Nets twice during this run in which their stars have been able to rest late in games.

It will be all the more important for the team heading into march where a 5 and a 6 game road trip await.
